With a grand total of 74,290,864 points, Slytherin House has won the first Pottermore House Cup! Gryffindor placed second with 74,069,919 points, Ravenclaw in third at 71,815,917 points, and Hufflepuff in fourth with 62,596,368 points.
Slytherin has been rewarded for their points with early access, by 24 hours ahead of all other houses, into Pottermore's upcoming Chamber of Secrets book. Here are details from the official Pottermore blog:
Please be aware that only students who were in Slytherin when the inaugural Pottermore House Cup was awarded, will get early access.
For students who are not in Slytherin, don’t despair. The first chapters of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will be available for everyone immediately after this 24-hour period.
Although the date of release is still unknown, the second book is expected sometime this summer.
Congratulations to Slytherin! Best of luck to all houses during the running for the second House Cup, which is already underway.
